Perfect

Have you ever had a song so stuck in your head that it toys with your emotions? The new song by Ed Sheeran is doing that to me. I can’t stop singing it!

Ironically, the title fits the design of this new sweater by Tetra. Perfect! It’s just long enough to be worn as a dress, or paired with pants or tights and I am absolutely envious of the frilly side ruffles.

The poses I used caused a break in the bottom front of the skirt which I edited out, but they were so minor and unlikely to be an issue most cases.

I went a daring and paired the shortness of the sweater with fishnets and thigh high boots from Empire, available at the new round of Collabor88.

On a side rant note, me and a friend of mine were discussing the changes in events over the years. I mean, whatever happened to the Collabor88 of years ago, where most items were just 88L? Now, you’re lucky to find something less than twice that. I get that mesh has advanced and the effort that goes into some of these really amazing creations is worth the extra bucks. Heck, I know I buy my fair share without even glancing at the price. But maybe its just me when I feel that what used to be a bargain event for all avatars has become something that not everyone can afford. There are definitely still too many new avatars out there that need the influence of a good event with top creators to get their foot in the door of non-noobness.

Break the Rules

If you like gachas, but hate the dreaded lag, endless full sims, or duplicate commons that come from such machines, then you should probably check out the new PocketGacha event. I picked up these new sneakers from Vale Koer, one of the sponsors of this new event and I confess, it is the most painless gacha experience I have ever had.

If you’re just now hearing about it, PocketGacha is a monthly gacha event that is completely HUD based. This means no more fighting lag or waiting for the usual sim campers to get their shit and get out. You can shop pretty much anywhere.

Here’s how it works:

  • Grab your PocketGacha HUD. You can do this on the SL Marketplace, at the PocketGacha Headquarters or via the inworld group. If you join the group, you’ll automatically receive the HUD on the 15th of each month.
  • You can choose to play the gachas via your HUD with either Lindens or Tokens. For those of you that are unsure about giving access to your Lindens to the HUD itself, you can purchase tokens from the PocketGacha HQ at a non-refundable 1:1 transfer rate. The tokens will then be added to your HUD for easy play. Oh, and don’t worry, they rollover!
  • Finally, you can flip through the HUD catalog and pay to play each gacha, or if you prefer, you can buy the entire set outright. I definitely love this idea for the savings alone!

The HUD is super easy to use, and as you can see offers a way to search, sort and manage your favorite gachas for each round. It also offers help, landmarks and useful information about this newest event.

So, what do you think about the new concept of PocketGacha?
